Over de auteur
Isidor Feinstein Stone, born December 24 1927, was a politically radicalAmerican investigative journalist and writer. He is best remembered for the newsletter, I. F. Stone’s Weekly, which was ranked in 16th place among “The Top 100 Works of Journalism in the United States in the 20th Century” by New York University’s journalism department in 1999, and in second place among print journalism publications.

I. F. Stone got an early start in journalism when he established a newspaper in his second year of high school. During his college years he worked the Haddonfield Press and for the Camden Courier-Post. After dropping out of university Stone joined The Philadelphia Inquirer. Influenced by the socially aware work of Jack London, Stone became a politically radical journalist. Stone also worked for the New York Post and The Nation before starting his own independent newsletter in 1953. I. F. Stone’s Weekly allowed him to write on whatever topic he wished after he became blacklisted and was unable to get other work.

He passed away in 1989 at age 81 of a heart attack.

‘The work stands twenty years later as it did when it first appeared, as a unique expression of daily newspaper work in the United States: of accurate, witty, objective, and committed reporting that rises by its own qualities to the level of contemporary history.’ – Robert Sklar, writer of the introduction.
